Happy Birthday to You Happy Birthday to you

Keirs 29th Birthday, how time flies by, wish we could go back a few years.  BUT we have the excitement of a baby on the way and I am so looking forward to being a Nanny - I just hope they stay together, he gets into such moods with Ali and it upsets her and us - went for a lovely meal the Whittington Arms near Lichfield, but ate too much, had lost 2lb's this week and no doubt have regained it again by tonight after a bad eating weekend.  Ah well, I can EASILY lose half a stone for Christmas I know I can.

Keirs house - ??? - lots of question marks.  supposed to be leaving - moving out of the rented place on 28th - that aint gonna happen, or it will happen and they will have to move here ! (but since all this worry over the last week the landlord has extended the tenancy by two weeks) thank goodness, and the house will be 'signed for' on Thursday this week.

Last thursday at work Keir was accused of stealing -  another OMG that WOULD never happen, he would NEVER steal, I know my son.  it was a mix up - and the head of security apologised on the Friday and hopefully everything is OK.  he has a new job - that is marvellous but you wonder what the next 'worry' is going to be.

We went to Merry Hill to get Keir his birthday present, we paid for Santa Pod tickets already £55 and bought him a hoody £50 - and we shall take him and Ali for a meal for his birthday if he wants to go - and then we have the deposit on the house to pay for him and Ali - I think enough is enough and now we have to close the bank of mom and dad - no more borrowing - no more giving money away.

I love my kids but enough is enough.

then finally I got my wardrobes erected today - the bank of wardrobes are mahoosive and lovely and so beautifully spacious and really well constructed and sturdy (apart from the back panels( which I wasn't happy about but in the shop the wardrobe was completely up against the wall, mine has the skirting board in front of it - so obviously there is movement.  Either way I love the wardrobes and I have loads and loads and loads of clothes in there that I cannot wear because I am too big - I need to lose a stone and so the challenge is on to lose a stone for Christmas 7 weeks and counting - and i would be able to wear a lot of those clothes hanging in my nice new wardrobes.  There it is then, in a nutshell.  I won't return to class but I will go back on SW at home and lose this bloody weight once and for all.

Was off sick last Friday and Annual Leave today (monday) that didn't look good did it !!!!  either way it's been a nice long weekend and i REALLY DO NOT WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK TOMORROW ESPECIALLY AS MY 'OTHER HALF' AT WORK HAS TOLD ME WE ARE ON SCANNING - BORING BORING BORING.

been away for a few days

only to weston super mare but stayed in a lovely hotel. met up with dave and jenny after 25 years............  where did 25 years go. good to meet up. spent a lot of money too. gotta spend less again now..... my wardrobes come on 25th .............. still got loads decorating to do and absolutely no help whatsoever !!!!! and at the moment now enthusiasm either!!!!

and cheddar gorge was fantastic

I look at my beautiful daughter

and feel sadness................because she needs someone lovely in her life, not necessarily a man as a partner but someone who is there for her, take her for a meal, take her to the zoo, come round for a sit and chat, someone to laugh with etc.  She has no one really, her so called best friend only ever contacts her when SHE needs korin.  i feel so sorry for Korin, I wish I could buy friends i would buy her a couple of really decent ones.

AND then, i would also like her to meet someone really nice who would love her as much as she loves them.  Someone to set up home with, someone to have holidays with, someone to relax with and maybe have children with.  I hope I see the day.

i look at my beautiful son

and feel sadness................I don't think he is doing well - the stress of waiting for the house to go through and the baby on the way and his GF not doing much in the house.  I feel sorry for him that she doesn' cook him a meal to come home to - I'm not the old fashioned type that thinks he should have a meal to come home to every night of the week, but it really wouldn't hurt one or two nights a week to think'what shall I cook for him tonight to come home to' - and he hasn't been doing much cooking either at the weekends for her to come home to.  I hope they are happy, I really do.
